EA has officially unveiled the Madden NFL 19 and Madden NFL Overdrive cover athlete featuring Pittsburgh Steelers star Wide Receiver, Antonio Brown. The star, known for his entertaining end zone celebrations, was also announced as part of the Madden 99 Club last month, taking his place amongst an elite group of players rated 99 OVR.

Madden NFL 19 is set to push players onto the path of gridiron greatness with more precision and control than ever before worldwide on August 10th. Want to tackle the gridiron on the go? Rebuilt from the ground up to deliver a completely revamped football experience, Madden NFL Overdrive is the new update for mobile available August 15th, 2018 on iOS and Android.

“I am beyond honored to be on the cover of both Madden games. There’s a lot of milestones athletes dream of, and after being inducted into the Madden 99 Club earlier this year, and now appearing on the cover of this year’s games, it’s clear that business is not just booming, but I’m also among the all-time greatest with these honors.” – Antonio Brown

Fans eager to control AB and other NFL stars will see the immediate benefits of Real Player Motion in Madden NFL 19. RPM technology will give fans even more control of in-game moves and immersive animations, making AB and other players move and act like their real-life counterparts as they charge through the game, showcasing their unique personalities, mannerisms, and of course, celebrations.

“AB has taken the league by storm the past few years and is arguably one of the best wide receivers to ever play in the NFL,” said Joshua Rabenovets, Sr. Brand Director at EA SPORTS. “His game is hot, he’s got a ton of personality on and off the field – he was an easy choice for the Madden NFL 19 cover.”

Fans can also look forward to the continuation of last year’s first-ever Madden NFL story-mode with the return of Longshot: Homecoming. Players will have more control over Devin Wade and Colt Cruise’s football quest with more NFL gameplay, more ways to impact the story, new storylines, and the ability to continue their Longshot journey within Franchise and Ultimate Team.

Players who purchase Madden NFL 19 Hall of Fame Edition will receive early access to the game starting August 7th. EA Access and Origin Access members can demo Madden NFL 19 for 10 hours on August 2nd on Xbox One and Origin for PC. Origin Access Premier members will receive early access to the full game on August 2nd on PC. Madden NFL 19 will be available on all consoles for players August 10.

Is Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 the new Fortnite?

The game has now sold more than $500 million in sell-through worldwide in its first three days of release as the total number of players climbed from last year. Through its first three days of release, Black Ops 4 set a new Call of Duty franchise record for most combined players, average hours per player and total number of hours played, on current generation consoles. The combined number of Black Ops 4 players across its three modes of play during those first three days tops both last year’s Call of Duty: WWII, as well as Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 (single player, multiplayer and zombies), respectively, for the same period of time.

The first Call of Duty release on Blizzard Battle.net, Black Ops 4 on PC continues to be significantly above last year, as the number of players is more than double year over year through its first three days.

Additionally, based on minutes watched, the title delivered the highest level of viewership through launch weekend on Twitch in franchise history.

Black Ops 4 is off to a blockbuster start. Our player counts and hours played are up year over year, our viewership on Twitch has set new standards and is showing just how fun Blackout is to play and to watch, and the weekend results yet again put Call of Duty at that highest tier of entertainment. Our digital sales results have been record-breaking across all platforms, and the overall performance strong. We’re really excited about Black Ops 4’s momentum. There’s much more to come, we’re just getting started.” – Rob Kostich, EVP and GM, Call of Duty

Following its launch last Friday, Black Ops 4 already established a new day one record on PlayStation for digital full game sales on PlayStation Store, globally; and also became the best-selling Activision Xbox One digital game on day one, globally. Through its first three days, PC digital sales and active players are up significantly from last year.

Sell-through sales figures include Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 retail and digital unit sales, including Black Ops 4 season pass sales, for the opening three-days following initial launch. Sales figures based on retail customer sell-through information, Gfk Chart-Track data, and internal Activision estimates. Total players, hours per player, total hours played, and Twitch viewership based on Activision data.
